Our land is melting
This is one of the most enthralling travel books I have read. Kabloona shows the process of a "superior" Westerner slowly becoming aware of the depth of Eskimo experience and eventually finding an unexpected depth of spirit within himself. Besides the spiritual journey, Linklater shows enumerable interesting details about the life and superior Eskimo survival skills. He lives and travels with Eskimos. Truly a brave spirit. I have read Kabloona twice over the years and about to read it again! One of the few books I have ever done this with.
